Trump tells Congress of intent to sell F-35s to UAE
Congressman Eliot Engel says sale 'requires very careful consideration and Congress must analyze all of the ramifications'

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON (AA) - The Trump administration notified Congress of its intent to sell advanced F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a key lawmaker announced Thursday.

Outgoing House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel confirmed the notification, saying its export "requires very careful consideration and Congress must analyze all of the ramifications."

Engel cited in particular, possible ramifications for "Israel’s military edge" in the region.

"Israel currently has exclusive access in the region to the F-35, which has guaranteed its military edge over the last several years," the congressman said in a statement. "As Congress reviews this sale, it must be clear that changes to the status quo will not put Israel’s military advantage at risk."
